My work showing included “the Kiss” , a finger drawing made using mainly Brushes on an iDevice. There are traces of other apps used as part of the creative chase for the final image.
My younger son and I joined a whole bunch of artists from around the world to share our enthusiasm making images on our idevices with our fingers. We called it Mobile art. Part of the mobile adventure was demonstrating the medium in Times Square….lots of busy fingers, alas only a small display screen. It’s the sky next time.
The artists have grown with the new medium, some have edited books, moved to tag painting, software and exhibitions.
A requirement of my travel grant to New York was to show my digital work in Darwin and present a talk on using idevices in making art. It al went ahead accompanied by Cyclone Carlos.
The act of making images using light, pixels using my finger on glass still captures my creative curiosity sustained by the many software advances used in our handheld devices e,g. superimposing moving images, adding sound, AI filters and sophisticated digital image manipulation, all within a little device.
